This was our second time using Lakewood Exterminating, and as before, we could not be more pleased. Shawn was prompt, pleasant and professional, and completed both the interior and exterior inspection along with treatment in under an hour. Once again, he was able to come out the same day we contacted him about the problem. We highly recommend this service!

I usually do not write reviews, but in this instance, i thought because of the great job Shawn did, i should. We were having a problem with gnats flying all over the house and could not locate the source. I called Lakewood Exterminating and the owner, Shawn, came out a day & 1/2 later. He identified the gnats as fungus flies, & found the source within minutes. He continued to check all our... plants and also checked and treated all of our drains. Also, used All Natural methods to solve our problem. He was professional, thorough, and explained fully any question we had. He emailed us after to check that we were fully satisfied, & if any further issues, to contact him since he wants us to be 100% happy with his work. We give him 5 stars because of his excellence.read more

Shawn is very responsive and a real professional. Extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He helped me trap and remove a number of mice over multiple visits and sealed up gaps through which he thinks the may have been getting in. Reasonably priced and very friendly to do business with. Will use him again whenever I need his services.

The first thing my sister n law suggested I do when I bought my house was to find an exterminator. I was happy to find one close to where I live. I pay for the quarterly services which has been a life saver. I had a problem with bees and Shawn came out and sprayed in between my quarterly sprays and they were gone within hours. Highly recommend!

Bravo! We cannot say enough good things about Exterminator Payne (Owner Shawn) of Lakewood Exterminating. We have enlisted his services repeatedly over the years and his response-time and effectiveness is so incredible it boggles the mind. We're blown away!Most recently we called him because a hard-to-reach wasp (yellow jacket) nest buzzing about outside our west attic window on the third... floor, some 25' to 30' high, was quickly getting out of control. Within 15 minutes Shawn was on-the-scene inspecting the point of entry/exit while suiting-up in full coverage protective gear, and in less than an hour had completed his work and was on his way. Haven't heard a buzzing, gnawing, or chewing peep in our walls since. What a relief!Highly responsive, professional, personable, and affordable;Lakewood Exterminating will be our first choice every time.read more

This was my first time using Lakewood Exterminating. I chose them because they were rated high on the "Angie's List" website....now I know why.

After weeks of ant issues I finally called to get a quote. Shawn was very reasonable on price, in fact he was below the average. He was very responsive to calls and emails and I had an appointment the next day, which was a government holiday. The treatment worked and we have had no problems since. I highly recommend.

We had a pavement ant issue for a while. We have controlled them inside ourselves with Terro and can usually get rid of them quick. We get them every summer. This summer we just couldn't control the nests they were forming outside. We have used other exterminators but didn't have good results. We decided to call Lakewood Exterminating because they have great reviews. Shawn has AMAZING... communication! Very quick to respond. He came out the same day we contacted him. He was very thorough in his treatment outside. A few days after he left we noticed some more activity. He came back and addressed the areas we saw activity in and it looks like things are under control now. Shawn cares about his customers and their satisfaction and stands behind his work. That's what we call a great company!read more

Shawn at Lakewood Exterminating really knows his stuff, quickly diagnosing who exactly was invading our front porch and boring holes in it. It turns out it was a carpenter bee (when I googled it, his diagnosis matched exactly with the pictures etc. I found online). He came out and immediately attacked the problem, with sprays and some 'direct action', which appears to have sorted the problem out... nicely. Great guy too. All in all, a great and trustworthy local business that deserves your support!read more

Shawn made himself available quickly for us on an early Sunday afternoon. He was thorough and placed traps in areas where the likelihood of traffic would be and explained areas on the outside of the house where entry was possible, which we quickly sealed up. The next morning a trap was set and the anxiety was gone. Lakewood Plant and Pest is definitely worth a call!

I called Lakewood Exteminating regarding a potential insect issue I was unsure about, and Shawn was a true professional from start to finish. Fair and honest from the start, Shawn worked around my schedule, was prompt and conducted a thorough inspection. Happily, it turns out I didn't have the issue I thought I did, and he gave me a heads up on a different issue which I should be able to take... care of myself. I also asked for assistance with something else, and Shawn happily obliged. I just checked my email and he's already following up with me. I'm very impressed and happy to know I have a solid company behind me if I ever have another issue. I will recommend him if anyone I know needs help in future. Sincere thanks, Shawn, for a job well done!read more

I initially called Shawn because of a mouse, and he was immediately responsive. I expressed concern about having to hire him in the middle of the COVID-19 quarantine, as I didn't want to put him or myself at risk, but he assured me that he would take every precaution.Between the time we scheduled and the day of the appointment, I discovered that a family of birds had broken into my attic, and... I hoped that he could take care of both problems to reduce the number of strangers coming over. He stated that he didn't usually work with birds and that he'd refer me to someone else after checking things out.Within minutes of arrival, Shawn was already removing the bird nest, sanitizing, and scaling a ladder to the third floor to install a new metal screen to replace the one the birds had destroyed. He even spray painted it to match my brick.At that point, checking for mice almost seemed like a bonus, but he thoroughly inspected for them, too. He plugged up holes outside the house that he thought might be entry points, then plugged up more when I showed other areas of concern.Shawn was professional but friendly, easy to work with, sanitary, and dedicated to solving the problem. He also followed up within 48 hours.I have not seen or heard any mice since he left. And while the birds are now nesting in my next door neighbor's patio awning (can't blame them for sticking around), they are not in my house!I would absolutely use Lakewood Exterminating again. Excellent service!read more

We had an animal (most likely a squirrel in our attic that we could hear at night) I sent Shawn an email and he called me first thing in the morning and was at the house by 12pm. He did a thorough search of the outside perimeter and sealed off any potential holes he found. He then climbed in the attic to look for an evidence of the animal and set down some poison. We have had no issues since. I... highly recommend his services and the price was very reasonable.read more

When I found that wasps had invaded my basement, Lakewood Exterminating was able to quickly work me into their schedule to come out and spray. They were prompt and efficient as well as nice to my overly curious cats. The wasps returned today, in my upstairs this time, and they managed to squeeze me in at the end of the day. A massive relief because wasps near the bedroom do not for a good night's... sleep make. I hope to not need an exterminator again but if I do, I will certainly be a repeat customer.read more

He did a walk around and quoted on the spot! To my surprise it was very affordable and he performed the work right then! After the service I was... showed and informed what he had done. I was very surprised by the whole experience, how painless it would be to safeguard the house from pests. He didn’t up sell or try to sell me something I didn’t need which was also a plus.

I originally found Lakewood Exterminating about 3 years ago when hornets made a large nest in a back wall of our house. They came and used a special powder on the nest and entire house and we didnt have an issue until recently.Naturally I called them again when bees made a huge colony under the mulch in our front flower bed. They were at the house for 15 minutes; killed the nest and did a... preventive spray of the house. The bees and the colony were gone by the time I came home from work 4 hours later.Super affordable. Cool guys who recognize the importance of the service they provide which is good for those who have severe allergies. Have them come out and you'll see why so many people gave them 5 star reviews.read more

We've used Lakewood Exterminating for the past 3 years and have always been happy with the results. Ant issues inside and outside were gone in a matter of hours! Sean is very professional and was able to squeeze us in for a last minute appointment.

We discovered a nest of yellow jackets - one bit my husband. When we called Lakewood Exterminating, Shawn answered the phone immediately, was gracious, and scheduled an appointment for us the very next day. The nest was treated the first thing the next morning and we have a 60 day guarantee should additional treatment be needed on the same nest. We are very pleased with the timely, thorough... service we received. We will definitely use them again.read more

We needed an inspection as part of our home sale. Shawn responded quickly and was even able to perform a same day inspection. He arrived on time and was respectful and polite. No sales gimmicks, no up-sells, just honest service. He was even able to email the report the same-day!!

I have used Lakewood Exterminating for several years . Owner, Shawn Payne, has always been incredibly responsive, absolutely professional and competitively priced. He has worked on several of my rental properties, dealing with issues from spiders to mice. He shows up to do the work within a day or two of my request. No one wants to deal with a bug or rodent problem for a minute longer by the time... the professional is called in! Highly recommended.read more

Shawn is an absolute lifesaver and I highly recommend him! He does an exceptional job from start to finish. He is very responsive to calls and emails, really thorough at assessing and communicating the problem and most importantly—he gets the job done! His pricing seems fair and he’ll make several trips to your house if needed. He has helped us twice now with 2 separate issues. Our first issue,... we had squirrels getting into our walls due to a hole in the siding. Shawn set the most impressive series of traps on our very awkwardly angled roof. He came back multiple times to check the traps and eventually to patch the house. I just can’t recommend him enough. His work and professionalism will give you such peace of mind. Thank you, Shawn!read more

Lakewood Exterminating has done work for our property management company. Over the years we have seen some difficult situations, including homes infested with bed bugs. They have been very successful and their work is timely and diligent. We always know that our investors and tenants are in good hands when we send Lakewood Exterminating.

Shawn was great to work with when I had squirrels getting in my attic through rotted wood on my house. He was very patient and accessible at all times during the capture process. He also openly shared his knowledge on how to repair the damage the squirrels made. Highly recommend Lakewood Exterminating for anyone having animal intrusion issues.

It has been about a month since Shawn came out to deal with German cockroaches in our house. We weren't at the level of an infestation (thankfully), but we had seen a couple in our bathroom and bedroom. We are pleased to report that we haven't seen any since he treated our home. He was quick, courteous, and very professional. We would definitely hire him again.

Shawn did a fantastic job of eliminating a horrifying house centipede invasion that was affecting all 4 levels of my house. He kept at the problem by applying a variety of treatments until the problem was resolved. I had tried other another exterminator before using Lakewood Exterminating - that exterminator failed to solve the problem. I will continue to use Shawn/Lakewood Exterminating in... the future.read more

I've been using Lakewood Exterminating for a few years now and have been very pleased with the results. They always make quick work of my ant problems! The spraying and bait traps both seem to be very effective. I've never had luck with store bought bait traps but the ones they use really draw the ants to them! The service is thorough, professional and well priced. Thanks guys!

I had mice in a house I recently purchased and my traps were not catching them but the cats were kind enough to bring the mice (alive) upstairs. So I called Lakewood Pest Control and they came right away. He showed me where the mice were getting in at and patched up the hole for me. He also pointed out other areas that could be potential problems which was such a great help. So far, no more mice... which I am very grateful for. I believe they are priced great! If I ever have anymore problems with pests, they hands down will be the first company I contact.read more

I cannot rate Shawn and Lakewood Exterminating high enough! I live in Washington DC and have tenants living in my house in Cleveland. I've used Lakewood Exterminating several times now for various pests.When my tenant needed a mouse situation resolved quickly, Shawn came that very night to put out traps and do an assessment to identify additional steps I could take to prevent mice from getting... into the house. He is incredibly professional and honest, and he always makes me feel like my business is a priority.Lakewood Exterminating also sends me quotes and bills electronically so that I can easily submit payment. It's great to be able to trust his services when living remote. Highly recommend them!!!!!read more

I had a rodent in my basement that I was unsuccessful in removing myself after 2 days of trying (and wasted dollars spent on many traps purchased). Hesitant to pay someone (I'm a DIYer) but wanting it gone asap was an internal debate, but boy I am SO glad that I called Shawn. He was very professional, quick working, flexible with his schedule, and even went above and beyond what I expected in... protecting my home from another unwanted rodent squatter. He noticed things I never would have and was very knowledgeable on the whole process and removal. Low and behold the rodent was gone from my basement within two days and now I have a peace of mind that my house will be rodent free from now on. If you're unsure about calling someone, JUST DO IT. Call Shawn. It's worth every penny & if I run in to any future pest issues he will be my first contact. Thanks again Lakewood Exterminating!read more

Staff was very nice and polite. If I need you again, I'll definitely call, and if a friend needs a pest control company I will be sure to recommend you.

He is very knowledgeable about what he does, and was responsive to my concerns with critters that I had no idea what their proper names were (lol).

Prices are super reasonable ~ which is a huge deal for a lot of people. 🙂

Called Shawn about a problem with mice that I was having. He responded quickly and came out the next day when I was available.

After returning home from a summer vacation beach rental we realized the dreaded bedbugs made the trip back as well. Countless hours were spent researching how to resolve the problem. I spent money on a professional looking steamer and over the counter defense measures (organic sprays, non organic sprays, diatomaceous earth, mattress encasements(you need these)). The application of this... treatment knocked them back. I thought they were gone. 4 months later, they were back.Lakewood Exterminating came out, educated me on the reasons of my failure (over the counter products don't work) then proceeded with a multi-step treatment. I wish I would have just done this after first realizing the problem.We now isolate our bags and clothes after returning from trips. Definitely not something we want to go through again.read more

I called Shawn and a few days later there was little to no ant traffic where it had been heavy. Shawn was also careful to keep the bait out of reach from my small dogs, I appreciate this attention to detail. He even came back for a follow up to make... sure those ant jerks were banished completely. I recommend him completely!read more

We have not... seen an ant since. He is very reasonably priced compared to other pest controls in the area. If we need an exterminator in the future we know who to call.read more

Five stars are not enough to rate Shawn and the great job he did for us. We had a large bee hive above our ceiling, and the bees were eating their way through the drywall and infiltrating our home. He came over at 5 a.m. on a Sunday, when the bees weren't active, and took care of the problem. The poor guy got stung about four times, but handled that so well. Then he cleaned everything up to... perfection.Also, it must be said, as well, that Shawn was VERY responsive. He called me back from the park with his kids, and made me feel as though this is not a problem for him to take care of for me. Everyone else I tried to call before him (Saturday afternoon) wasn't willing to help or didn't answer messages, even though they were still "open."Shawn is the Best!!! Thank you!! We will be calling you now for the plant/yard work you do, too.I know Shawn will continue to have great success with his business, based on his excellent work ethic, sincere kindness, and his obvious knowledge about that which he does, competently ridding his customers of the pests we had with ease.read more
